"Even her father, who supported her desire to be a pilot had told her, 'Honey, it's no career for a woman....A girl doesn't have the chance.'(15) This person was quoted because her father didn't believe in her and if anyone one person was to believe in her it would've been her father. She was determined to be a pilot even though no one believed in her.
